Garlic Naan

My last post was a recipe for Peshwari Naan a delicious twist on the staple plain naan. Tonight it's another naan recipe which is very much loved amongst not only family members but pretty much all my friends.

I know that whenever I'm out for a meal with my friends, without fail, garlic naan has to be ordered, no matter if we've ordered other varieties, and there's always a battle for the last piece !

This recipe will make 4-6 naan and they literally will go with any curry whatsoever:

2 fl oz warm water
pinch of sugar
1 tsp dried active yeast
500g plain/bread flour
whole bulb of garlic (crush the cloves)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp garlic powder
50g melted butter

  • In a small bowl mix the yeast sugar and warm water together, leave for about 10 minutes for the yeast water to become frothy
  • In another bowl, put together the flour, salt and crushed garlic cloves, add in the yeast mix and enough warm water to make a soft dough
  • turn out onto floured surface and knead it together for about 10 minutes
  • Place the dough back in the bowl, cover and leave to rise for about 2 hours. If you're a bit short of time, you can add in a pinch of baking powder to speed up the process
  • Put a non stick pan on your hob to a medium heat and turn your grill on full
  • In a small pan, melt the butter on a low heat and stir in the garlic powder 
  • Divide and roll out your dough into 4 balls, roll one out into a circle about a quarter of an inch thick
  • Place onto your non stick pan and cook, just as in step 7 for Peshwari Naan
  • Place the naan under the grill, to lightly brown the top, when you take the naan off the grill, lightly brush the top with the melted garlic butter and serve
